  6 Previous studies have investigated the plantar pressure characteristics of other sports such as running, 7,8 soccer-specific tasks, 6,9,10 and fencing 11 to elucidate foot loading and injury.   Foot plantar pressure is the pressure field that acts between the foot and the support surface during everyday locomotor activities. Information derived from such pressure measures is .   Pressure-sensitive measurement tools have existed since the s, and provide an alternative approach to studying the foot–shoe or foot–running surface interactions. They allow for the determination of centre of pressure trajectories during the contact phase of running and can provide data on plantar pressure location and by:   Foot plantar pressure is the pressure field that acts between the foot and the support surface during everyday locomotor activities. Information derived from such pressure measures is important in gait and posture research for diagnosing lower limb problems, footwear design, sport biomechanics, injury prevention and other applications. This paper reviews foot plantar sensors .

This book provides a better insight in foot biomechanics during barefoot running based on the use and interpretation of plantar pressure measurements. To gain those insights, plantar pressure date were obtained for subjects to provide a reference dataset for plantar pressure variables during barefoot running.   "Everyone has their own signature to their gait, which allows them an efficient pattern of movement over ground," says Mark Cucuzzella, M.D., who has designed running programs for the U.S. Air Force and is the author of Run for Your Life: How to Run, Walk, and Move Without Pain or Injury and Achieve a Sense of Well-Being and Joy. "Your posture, as well as your foot's interface with the .   Foot Pressure Measurement Environments There are a variety of plantar pressure measurement systems but in general they can be classified into one of two types: platform systems and in-shoe systems. • Platform Systems 7/11/ 10 A platform- based foot plantar pressure sensor It is active for about 73% of the cycle (compared to 54% when walking). The swing phase when running, is 62% of the total gait cycle, compared to 40% when walking, so TA is considerably more active when running. Its activity is mainly concentric or isometric, enabling the foot to clear the support surface during the swing phase of the running gait.

Motion analysis module: foot pressure measurement As all the other modules, the foot pressure measurement module is seamlessly integrated in the software. This integration of pressure measurement systems enables the user to capture foot pressure data (using floor mats or insole systems) and DV-video clips or high-speed video clips synchronously. The design of a suitable transducer to measure the pressure under the foot it presented. The transducer is attached to the sole of the foot and can, if required, be worn inside shoes. A system is described using up to 16 transducers, the analogue signals from which are digitised online and stored on magnetic tape for subsequent computer analysis. Cutting and jumping movements demonstrated more than double the pressure at the heel compared with running straight, regardless of shoe type. The Air Pro Turf showed overall lower pressure for all movement types (P.   More on Proper Running Foot Strike >> 2. Maintain a Tall Posture as You Run. Your running posture is one of the keys to achieving good, efficient form. The postures you sustain at your desk during the working day, in the car or on the sofa have a real carry-over into the way you run.
